K-Lou is going to a new school next year! This means we finally get to take her out of public school...yay! We've always had a hard time having her in public school, but it's been getting to be more and more of a problem. We were constantly having to explain to her why what we believe is different than what the schools were teaching her in terms of science and even history. And of course there is the influence of the other kids which we were not always thrilled about. Although, I have to say, we heard some amusing stories about K-Lou at her last parent-teacher conference. Like how she asked the guest speaker from China about the persecution of Christians there. That was a good one. Anyway, she will be attending a private Christian School located at our church. The great part is, we get a 30% discount because Daniel works in full time ministry. Yesterday morning we took K-Lou to the school to sit in with them for a while. She spent about 2 hours there and loved it! She knew one of the kids from church and said that everyone was really friendly to her. I think it helped a lot that while she was there she got to join in on recess, P.E., practice for their talent show, and lunch. She was also rather impressed at how often they talked about God during school. Apparently she didn't really believe us when we told her that's one of the reasons we want to send her there! She's defiantly excited about it though which is a huge relief for us because she's been having a hard time with the idea of leaving her school and friends to go somewhere new. One nice thing about this school is that it goes all the way through high school, so there's a good chance she can stay there!
